Tabacon Resort


The beauty of this hotel is that you have access to the best Hot springs in Arenal. Situated in 748 acres, you feel like you have entered another world when you explore the resort. They have cultivated exquisite tropical gardens so wherever you walk you are always surrounded by beautiful blooms of colour - saffron yellows, salmon pinks, and vivid fuchsias.

Why we recommend it:

  • Lovely large rooms
  • Outstanding hot springs and swimming pool
  • Good buffet food
  • Great location




The hotel itself is elegant, serene and stylish. Importantly, they place great emphasis on a personal and friendly service. So much so that the Tabacon has a Guest services manager whose role is to ensure that all guests have a truly memorable stay by surprising them with little things such as flowers or chocolate strawberries in their room.
There are 114 rooms and 5 different types. All the rooms are delightfully furnished with rich hard woods and ivory linens; and have a balcony, LCD TV and DVD. The water is purified and fed directly from the hot springs. A real ‘Pura Vida’ experience! The Superior premium rooms are a good size, with king beds or two queens, a view of the volcano and a larger bathroom. The honeymoon suite is divine with a resplendent mahogany four poster bed, a glass walled bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi, and a large tropical garden.
The Grand Spa is nothing less than sumptuous. There is a seemingly endless series of pools, each fed by the hot springs, which make for a very private and romantic experience. Treatments are given in private open air bungalows and each has its own Jacuzzi. They have a unique treatment called the Temazcal which draws on Mexican tradition and uses the lava of Arenal to create a special sauna which relaxes you like no other.
There are two restaurants and two pool and Jacuzzi areas for relaxing.
